Barrett Gets This One Right; So Does Hegarty

Here's a toast to Tommy Barrett for calling a thug a friggin' THUG:

"A 4-year-old girl died last night. A 4-year-old girl was shot and killed last night in our city. ... Some gutless thug decided he would solve his problem by shooting a 4-year-old girl. What a tough guy. He can brag about that to all of his buddies, that he took out a 4-year-old girl."

In another development, Milwaukee's temporary police chief decided to do exactly what I had mentioned to a neighbor (and retired cop): put walking-the-beat cops into the "hot" areas to enhance security, build relationships, and push the remaining thugs (and wannabee thugs) around a bit.

Nice to see that Hegarty has figured out how to run an op.

But whatever happens, let us not cast aspersions at the culture or art forms that encourage this behavior.
